after studying Multible Streams of Income I researched Virginia. Yes, it's a tax deed commonwealth. I found the attorney that handles the property auctions. I now have access to the monthly auctions in dozens of counties throughout Virginia. I'm gathering my money in anticipation of attending some deed auctions and making some investment purchases.
